Strengths & Weakness Of Alhaitham

Alhaitham needs a lot of investment on Elemental Mastery because of his Passive that increases his damage based on it. To maximize Mysteries Laid Bare, you need 1000 Elemental Mastery but it is okay not to maximize it. Since you are mainly going to use Alhaitham in reaction comps, it is recommended to reach at least 500 Elemental Mastery.

Deepwood VS Gilded Dreams

When choosing between Deepwood and Gilded Dreams, think of the comp that you are using. Deepwood Memories is preferred for its flexibility but when running with other characters that can equip Deepwood Memories, it is better to equip Alhaitham with Gilded Dreams and the support with Deepwood Memories. This will give you more damage.

Uses Of Alhaitham's Elemental Skill

Teleports You To The Marked Location

Elemental Skill

Using the Elemental Skill of Alhaitham teleports you to the aimed location and deals an AoE Dendro DMG at the location.

Gains Chisel Mirror & Dendro Infusion

After using Elemental Skill, Alhaitham will gain Dendro Infusion that cannot be overridden and a ▼Chisel Mirror.

Scales From Both ATK & Elemental Mastery

The DMG of the Elemental Skill of Alhaitham double scales from its ATK and Elemental Mastery. Elemental Mastery is more valuable however since it also affects the rest of the Kit of Alhaitham.

Uses Of Alhaitham's Elemental Burst

Deals AoE DMG In Front Of Alhaitham

The Elemental Burst of Alhaitham deals multiple hits of Dendro DMG Bonus to the enemies. The number of hits is dependent on the number of Chisel Mirror that Alhaitham possesses during the activation. The damage from this both scales from EM and ATK.

Generate Chisel Mirror Depending On The Number Of Mirrors During Activation

During ActivationAfter Burst

Elemental Burst can also be a way to gether Chisel Mirror but it is generally not recommended because it has a fairly high cost of 70 Energy.

You Might Lose Your Infusion When Using Elemental Burst

Elemental Burst will consume the Mirrors and summons them again depending on the number that you currently have during activation. If you have 3 Chisel Mirrors, activating Elemental Burst will make you lose infusion. It is recommended to unleash Elemental Burst when you have 2 Chisel Mirror or as a finisher before you switch to your supports.

What Is Chisel-Light Mirror?

Elemental Burst
Click to Enlarge

Gives Infusion To Alhaitham

If you have a Chisel-Light Mirror Stack, all of Alhaitham's Attack will be infused by Dendro. This cannot be overridden by other elements or skills like Candace's Burst or Chongyun's Elemental Skill.

Provides Additional Dendro Attack Based On Amount Of Stacks Obtained

Depending on the stacks of Chisel- Light Mirror that you have, an AoE Skill will be unleashed with your attack. This will be the main source of AoE Damage from Alhaitham

Use Elemental Skill & Charged Attacks To Gain Stacks

Elemental Skill - Gain 1 if you have a stack
- Gain 2 if you do not have a stack.
Plunge / Charge Attack - Gain 1 when opponents are hit. (Has a 12 second cooldown).

You can gain Chisel-Light Mirror Stacks by using Elemental Skill. You can also obtain it every 12 seconds through Charged and Plunging Attack if you have the "Four-Causal Correction" passive unlocked.

How To Keep 3 Chisel Mirrors?

Knowing how to consistently get 3 Chisel Mirror is crucial to the damage of Alhaitham. The sword rain of Dendro can easily deal multiple powerful hits.

Start Combos With Elemental Skill → Plunge Or Charged Attack

If you have 0 Stack of Chisel Mirror, using Elemental Skill will give you 2 instead of 1. You can continue the combo with Charged Attack to get 3 Chisel Mirrors. To save stamina, you can also aim the Elemental Skill a little higher so you can deal plunge attack completing the combo that gives you 3 Mirrors quickly.

Use Elemental Burst When You Have 1 Chisel Mirror Stack Left → Charged Attack

Using Alhaitham's Ultimate while there is 1 Chisel Mirror Stack left will give 2 Stacks add a Charged Attack to keep 3 Mirrors. It is easier to get 3 Mirrors by activating Elemental Burst when you have no stacks but it makes the damage from Ultimate itself weak.

As an Ahaitham main, I believe EM has been over-rated, while ATK has been under-rated. IMO, EM is meant to be bonus damage... like HP for Ayato. Critical and ATK still provide the best output.

Anonymous 21

Raiden - Yelan - Alhaitham - ( Diona(C6), Yaoyao, or Kokomi) make an excellent team. For Diona to work requires Deepwood and over 200% Energy recharge to hit E + Burst every round. Use Yao to help Alhaimtham burstrate, Kokomi with T3DR for simlicity.

Anonymous 20

that rotation is wholly wrong its burst in normal attacks then a charged attack or skill to keep up mirrors. using other characters to keep up reaction/buff uptimes and gilded is always preferred cause he is best with a 2nd dendro. Who did your testing?

Anonymous 19
